This month, WETA TV 26 and WETA HD will broadcast three episodes of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW taped last summer at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The most popular series on public television today, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW features specialists from the country’s leading auction houses and independent dealers traveling throughout the United States, offering free appraisals of items brought to ANTIQUES ROADSHOW events by the public. Veteran television personality Mark L. Walberg serves as series host.
Inspired by the film Latino Americans, we decided to seek out a local perspective on the Latino experience in our community with our weta.org Digital Extras. Luis Araya immigrated to Arlington, Virginia from Bolivia in 1966, when very few Latinos lived in the county. He reflects on the changes he has seen over the years and the influence of Latinos in Arlington today.
